thank God for budgets!

We thank God we are trying hard to stick to a budget this year! With "unexpected bills" of braces, hospitals, doctors, broken laptops and now a new water heater having some savings has been a huge help!

2 days ago Bub heard something as he went to bed. The girls followed but heard nothing. From my comfy bed at nearly midnight I hear him call "MOM! THERE IS WATER SPRAYING EVERYWHERE!" That got me moving!  I saw the soaked floor, door and a heavy mist flowing from the small closet and knew it wasn't good. Hubby was roused and he found both water lines cracked and spewing forth. We shut the water off and went to bed.

Yesterday Hubby bought parts to fix the lines and we noticed the tank leaning backwards. We figured the floor was ruined so we drained the tank and pulled it out. Yep, the floor is toast. So are the walls. MOLD everywhere.  The water heater has been acting funny lately by not providing but a couple minute hot shower and we know why. The whole back part of the tank's bottom was rusted out and GONE. Its been pouring through the floor for who knows how long.

What was a simple fix is now a full gut of that closet, the hall and possibly of our oldest's room too.
